Doe Plaintiffs v. Roe Defendants

After becoming pregnant, a mother initially decided to terminate her pregnancy, but later changed her mind and presented for medical care including a rubella test. Although the result of the rubella test indicated that the mother might have been exposed to rubella during her first trimester, the information was not given to her and no additional tests were ordered. She continued on with the pregnancy and gave birth to a disabled child.

This case was hotly contested due, in part, to the nature of the claim and also on account of the uncertainty of the medical science relating to issues of both liability and causation. Although there was no offer to settle it before trial, case was sent out to trial and thereafter resolved for a complex structured settlement with a present value of $1.2 million.

Resolution: $1.2 Million
